Went for sushi dinner with Maekhoo in the city last night because she passed all her exams. So it was her treat :D Thank you!!! hehehe...

She found this Japanese restaurant in Melbourne Central called Tomodachi. Every Tuesdays, each plate of sushi will only cost $3.50. And this restaurant was said to have the largest variety of sushi in Melbourne, but to us, it couldn't even beat the varieties that Sushi King in Malaysia had!! Not even halfway.. They had sooo few varieties that after awhile, we kind of got bored and didn't know what else to eat. The only 'plus point' to it is that the ingredients used were really really fresh. The sashimi was good...

These were the few types of sushi we tried. There were like 5 to 6 more that didn't attract us. So yeah, you could say that their 'largest variety in Melbourne' means less than 20 types of sushi.

After dinner, while we were just strolling along the streets, we decided to stop and have some sago dessert in this Hong Kong restaurant. I think it was called 'Dessert House' or something, it's along Swanston street, opposite QV. Ordered Honeydew Sago.

And this came...
How pathetic!!! It was like ice water with a few honeydew fruit dumped into it... And the sago was over boiled! Soooo mushy and disgusting! And when almost halfway through it, we found this little black thingy inside and decided to complain. The waiter took the dish to the kitchen and back to our table and told us that according to the chef, that little black thing was not some animal but some seed because they didn't wash something (couldn't hear what the guy said) properly and got into our food and expects us to be ok with it. And we continued complaining that it was bad! Saying it just tasted like ice water, there wasn't any honeydew taste to it and we're not paying for it. The waiter then took it back again and we left. Eeewww!!!

Firstly they said it wasn't some animal. ok, this is mean but I couldn't help myself from laughing on the inside. How can an animal fall into that small bowl???!! LOL!!

Secondly, they dare to tell us that they didn't wash whatever they used properly and a seed from some other fruit got into our food. By saying that, and they expect us to continue eating. Come on! Would you?!

Overall, had a relaxing day out. Had not bad dinner (thank you again Maekhoo). Just BAD choice of place for dessert. And not even a word of apology from them! That's just bad!!!
